Circles & Squares

Circles & Squares

A minimal mixture of circles and squares is what makes up the very simple and charming Snövsen desktop lamp by Danish design studio, MadeByWho. Four Danish maple wood pieces for support, a thin painted ceramic shade, and a single bright LED are all that go into the construction, making it cost efficient to manufacture and very lightweight. Leave it to the Danes!

The Staged Is Set For This Lamp

The Staged Is Set For This Lamp

The Stage is a lamp inspired by the acrobats who grace the circus. Their antics atop of the trapeze and their skillful executions go on to bear a striking resemblance in the way you interact with the lamp. Kisun has recorded an enigmatic video here, which compliments the sentiments of an aerial dance that the artists portray. Have a look…

Bright and Bendy!

Bright and Bendy!

Gotta love this minimal, interactive lamp design by Gergő Kassai. The Motion lamp’s bendable, ultra-thin body is composed of an OLED embedded in free-form silicone that makes it possible to twist and turn the lamp in any direction. The playful design will have you wondering why you can’t keep your hands off it!

Origami Glow

Origami Glow

Inspired by ancient art of origami, the Paper Lamp is a simple and beautiful design that is as fun to put together as it is environmentally conscious. The shade is made from sustainable and innovative bamboo paper that’s formed to the frame with wood pegs. The screwless, glueless wooden support is held together with interlocking parts that snap together and keep the structure sturdy.

Light In The Clouds

Light In The Clouds

Simply love this elegant amalgamation of glass and bulb to create a magical lamp. Cleverly titled Untitled Collaboration Work, the lamp sees the blossoming of a unique partnership between product designer Design-JAY and glass-blowing professional Yoowan Yang. Handmade glass, natural cork and 20 watt light bulb is all that they needed to create this beauty.

Automatic Grill Light

Automatic Grill Light

This idea was born in a backyard and will leave you wondering, “why didn’t I think of that!?” – The GRILLIT light attaches to any outdoor grill to provide instant illumination to the cooking space each time the hood is opened. Simply slide and twist the barrel to direct light where needed. It’s a great “set it and forget it” solution!

Everyday Flash

Everyday Flash

The Apollo Flashlight is an attempt to blur the lines between a flashlight and a table lamp. Most often flashlights lead a sedentary life, forgotten in some obscure kitchen drawer. However giving it the meaningful life of a regular lamp, not only enhances its functionality but also gives it a dual purpose.

A Lamp with Multiple Personalities

A Lamp with Multiple Personalities

Lighting is a delicate thing- sometimes you want to set the mood with a little ambient glow and sometimes you need direct light for working. The Captiva lamp makes it possible to switch between both in just seconds. Simply adjust the flexible neck to cast a focused beam or point it upwards into the shade to diffuse the light!

Functional Flexability

Functional Flexability

Switch-It is an exploration into both flexible material and flexible functionality. At first glance it appears to be a classic floor lamp, but slide it down and the shade expands to a flat surface, transforming it into an occasional side table. It’s great conversation-starting piece that’s perfect for compact spaces.

Old Incandescent Repackaged

Old Incandescent Repackaged

Lit is an eco-aware, unbreakable light bulb that revisits the old incandescent. Giving timeless design a new meaning, the bulb adapted to different types of lighting fixtures and is customizable because the sockets are modular. The designer claims it to be the world’s first light bulb with a hybrid technology – LEDs and Optical fiber. Apparently the technology gives an incredible lifetime to the bulb, with an excellent dimmable light quality trough the time. Money savings and reduced enviornmetal impacts are assured!

The Lamp That Wants to Be a Flower

The Lamp That Wants to Be a Flower

This clever design might seem a little obvious, but it’s actually quite thoughtful! The BLUM lamp’s floral inspiration is apparent in its form, but it also takes inspiration from living plant’s energy process. Set the plant by the window, and solar panels harvest the sun’s energy to power the bright LED lights. It’s the flower that gives back after the sun goes down!

Limber Lamp

Limber Lamp

Gotta love this clever design by Product Tank! The Clamp Lamp was inspired by those silly collapsing toys that stand and fall with the press of a button. Like the toys, the lamp uses an internal system of cables that make it flexible when the lever is gripped or rigid when released. The user can bend it, move it, twist it, or turn it to the desired shape or light direction with one simple squeeze.

Not Your Average Industrial Lamp

Not Your Average Industrial Lamp

This unusual lamp design goes to show that a little tape and cardboard can go a long way! Composed of just compressed cardboard and LED tape (along with a few other binding agents) the Amparo lamp makes for a versatile, cost efficient lighting solution that will work almost anywhere. Hang it, mount it, desk it, drop it, hold it… the list goes on! Did I mention that it’s flat-pack ready?!
